The Fragrant Pharmacy
Our sense of smell is one of our most powerful senses, the smell of a particular aroma or perfume can evoke old feelings, emotions and sometimes even a moment of nostalgia.
We believe this is why consumers want their cosmetic products to inspire them daily with a beautiful smell. organicspa is a truly natural & organic brand so we choose to use pure organic essential oils to create subtle aromas that stimulate the senses. By combining a variety of different essential oils in our products we have produced a range of unique aroma blends that delight the senses.
Essential oils are made of such small particles that it enables them to be easily absorbed by our noses and skin, into to our circulatory system. The highly concentrated plant components in essential oil possess many beneficial vitamins that can assist with our health and well-being. That’s the reason why we think it is so important to ensure that the aroma is made of natural components (not those nasty harmful chemicals).However, it takes a huge volume of plant matter to extract a small portion of essential oil. For example to make 5ml of rose oil over 10000 flower petals are required! That´s why essential oils are so special and precious.
Whats the main difference between essential oils and fragrances? Well, fragrances often found in cosmetics and perfumes involve cheaper manufacturing techniques that result in artificially created scents, designed to mimic the aroma of a natural product but without the qualities of essential oil. Artificial fragrances can contain harmful additives (eg: Phthalates) and chemicals that are damaging not only to our bodies but also to our environment. These fragrances are what we traditionally see in our department stores, airports, pharmacies, usually inside expensive perfume bottles or many famous cosmetic brands.
A great way to understand the difference is to compare a fresh orange with an orange flavoured lolly. The lolly has the appearance of an orange but it’s full of preservatives and other unknown chemicals, it has been enhanced synthetically in a lab. Whereas the orange piece has health benefits such as rich in Vitamin C and astringent properties, it has been created and developed by the best scientist we know; mother nature.
At organicspa we encourage you to embrace pure and natural products in your everyday routine.
